Research Overview:

My current research interests include frustrated magnetism, dielectric/metallic superlattices, ferroelectricity near quantum criticality and the possibility of new broken symmetries in actinide heavy fermion materials.

News Item(s):
  • Professor Premi Chandra has been elected a Fellow of the American Physical Society
  • Rutgers Physicists, Premala Chandra, Piers Coleman, with Rebecca Flint(now at MIT) have discovered a new form of hidden "hastatic" order in the heavy-fermion compound URu2Si2
